Midnight Juggernauts, "Shadows": Hand-clappy, breathily vocal'd synthtronica from the land that once vomited up Midnight Oil.
Surkin, "Next of Kin": This Parisian house producer's only 20 years old -- too young to drink beer in the States, but old enough to tell you loudly about how he can drink beer at home.
The Teenagers, "Starlett Johansson": Guitar-rocking, stalkerific ode to the lovely and talented comedian Jake Johannsen.
Chromeo, "Fancy Footwork": Ironic '80s-ish dance-rock from a duo composed of an Israeli and Palestinian, now relocated to an even grizzlier hellhole of separatism: Montreal.
Busy P f. Murs, "To Protect and Entertain": A hip-hop ode to LA that name-checks everything from Amoeba Records to Cinespace to Coachella founder Paul Tollett. Well, Murs, at least you didn't have to do his laundry.
